  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I feel certain this is a silly question but... My dash instrument lights and multi-function display all just went out. Strangely the dash display a few hours before the multi-function. Question #1, is there any reason to suspect this isn't just a blown fuse? Seems odd but also, I was a theatre...
  2. Lighting and Electrical
    I pulled out the wrong fuse... I meant to pull out the blower fuse but pulled the audio/navi fuse. And now it won't turn on. The fuse I originally pulled was fine (and still is) but now my interior lights aren't working either. What happened? Is it simple to fix? I'm too far away for me to go to...

    Hi all, I replaced the tail lights for my car around August of this year. All was fine until about October when the tail lights mysteriously went out. I still had brake lights and all, just no tail lights. I checked its fuse, lo and behold, it was blown. So, I swapped it out and all was fine...
  4. Interior and Electronics
    To start from the beginning, I recently bought a 2001 Forester, everything original. Absolutely nothing wrong with the car, but the speakers were blown to hell and back, so I figured it would be a cheap fix. Replaced those and everything was fine. Radio would sometimes not work. It would be on...

    Hey guys I am a total noob at electronics so I wanted to run this plan past people that aren't: I'm trying to hardware a 2 port phone charger cable and a 2 port USB thing. My plan is to use a female cigarette socket adapter for a simple cig lighter charger like this...

  7. Lighting and Electrical
    A while back I found a loose green wire with an empty clip near the fuse box in my car (will post pics below). I discovered that that wire was supplying a full 12v of power when the key was turned on. So long story short, I wired that spare power to a switch, to a few light pods on my roof...

    I was chasing down a O2 sensor CEL...P0031 and P0037 related to the O2 sensor heater. It led me to check my fuses and I discovered that the SBF#5 (which the O2 sensor runs through, among other things) was so badly corroded that the fuse box male pins broke off. This is no longer a matter of...
  9. Lighting and Electrical
    I'm looking to tap into the wire for fuse 13 from the interior fuse box (Accessory power outlet (center console)). I see all the wires coming out from behind the fuse box. Can anyone tell me what color the wire for this circuit is?
  10. Lighting and Electrical
    Installing an LED light bar behind my front bumper ala this. Tested it prior to installing and everything was working fine (light came on/off when switch activated). Of course, now that I put the bumper back on and try and fire it up it blows the inline fuse in the lighting harness, gone...

    Today I checked the engine compartment fuse box of my 2 week old Forester, and I think I am missing the fuse pulling tool... The manual says there should be one, and I think I am looking at the right place here, right? Did this tool come in yours? I wanted to double check before I complain...
  12. Lighting and Electrical
    First time post here... Recently, the battery in my 2005 Forester was losing its charge. I did a bit of testing myself and found it to be the alternator. I put in a remanufactured alternator from NAPA, and it seems to work alright. During this testing though, I seem to have found (or caused)...
